Just got back from a weekend of house-hunting and the Wingate made a nice base. . Very comfortable bed & pillows and our room was very clean. High-speed internet in the rooms--though I occasionally had trouble with the wireless, I just plugged into the Ethernet cable. Doesn't have some of the high-end finishes like flat screen TVs or granite in the bathrooms, but it was very clean and in good condition. King room had plenty of room to spread out with a big chair/ottoman, desk with office chair, and a mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Breakfast was adequate with waffles, eggs, sausage, fruit, yogurt, toast, English muffins, bagels, and cereal. The usual coffee, juices and milk were also available.
A few downsides:
Pool is outside--closed during bad weather so beware of this if you have kids.
Nightstands only on one side of the bed...had to put my book, drink, cell, etc on the floor.
Air conditioner--keeps clicking on and off when it gets to the proper temperature. VERY irritating when trying to sleep.
Mulch/fertilizer--just outside the front door it smelled like the inside of a horse barn. We literally held our noses from the front door to about 10 feet away from the mulch beds.
Overall I have no problem recommending this hotel to anyone coming to the area.
